There is a horrific story out of South Carolina about a family dog that killed and dismembered a 2-month old child. According to the story, this happened while the father slept. The mother discovered this unbelievable tragedy when she returned home. From the article: "Aiden McGrew’s mother called 911 when she got home around 11 a.m. and discovered the boy’s leg was severed by a retriever mix the family had taken into the home a few weeks earlier." The coroner, Chris Nisbet, said, "Today is one of the saddest days in my [over] 20 years of being in the Dorchester County Coroner’s Office as I report to all of you one of the worst deaths I have ever handled." This will, I am sure, haunt all involved for the rest of their lives. I definitely offer prayers for the family that they will somehow be able to handle this terrible tragedy.
But the unfortunate fact of our society is that thousands of small children are killed and dismembered every day in the United States, and many more tens of thousands throughout the world. It is completely legal. It is called abortion. Yes, these are "unborn" children, but the truth is that if the child in the South Carolina story had been four months younger, or a 7 month old preborn baby, it would have been completely legal to go into the womb of Aiden McGrew's mother and tear him apart limb from limb.
Most people are not aware of just how abortions are done. There are different methods, but one that is often employed is called "Dilation and Curettage", in which the abortionist goes into the mother's womb with a hook shaped knife (curette) which cuts the baby into pieces. The pieces are scraped out through the cervix and discarded. The diagram at the right shows how this is done. A nurse must then reassemble all the dismembered parts of the baby to make sure none were left in the mother. As you can see from the diagram, the last part of the baby to be removed is the head. I will spare showing you pictures of a mutilated baby from this procedure, but if you are interested, you can do an online search. But I will warn you, these pictures are gruesome beyond description.
This is what happens in abortion clinics throughout our country. This is what we are paying for when we give taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood. We are paying for the mutilation and murder of innocent babies in the wombs of their mothers. Most people blissfully and ignorantly walk by these killing fields never thinking about the horrors happening on the other side of those walls. Little legs and arms are torn off of babies' bodies, their heads are decapitated. And it is a scientific fact that a fetus can feel pain at least as early as 8 weeks.
We cringe at stories like the one from South Carolina, and we hold our children a little closer to us thankful that such a dreadful event has not happened in our families. But as you read this, remember that it is happening to thousands of children at this very moment. How much longer can our loving God put up with this satanic evil? How much longer can good people allow this to happen right under their own noses? If you are sickened by the story out of South Carolina, then you should be even more outraged that this is sanctioned by our government. What are you doing about it? Edmund Burke said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph [of evil] is for good men to do nothing."
